@1CreateLegacyLL, in the last year or so I have had scammers contact me saying they got my information from my quote on Thumbtack. They wanted to hire me but they all wanted to send me a check for substantially more than my fee. They wanted me to cash the check, keep my fee and send the balance to a "wedding planner" or "photographer" or "caterer", etc. who, for whatever reason, couldn't take a check themselves. One scammer said his employer was going to pay for the wedding but would only cut one check. I was already aware of this particular scam, I had him send me the check...$2500. Had I followed his instructions, I would have cashed the check, kept $300 and sent $2200 to his "wedding planner". Instead, the first thing I did was google the business name on the check, an oil change business in San Diego, and get the contact info. I called the business owner who told me that his business had been burglarized and his checkbook stolen. I then called the bank and gave them the account number, which was a closed account, and alerted them to the situation. I then sent the check to the police department in San Diego who wer investigating the theft. All of these people were very glad that I contacted them. Then I called Thumbtack and told them. Their response? "Oh well, this happens."

Hello everyone,

I've had the same thing happen to me this week. They called from a google number and set up an account via Thumbtack. I have a whole thread from them stating that they were going to send me a copy of the check by image and for me to deposit it in my bank. They changing the activity date on me twice and only communicated via text message. I finally got them on the phone but they were activing as though they had a bad connection. It's honestly very scary and annoying so I blocked the number.
